I am a 30 yr old stay at home mom who has been going through the motions with my neurologist to get this diagnosed. We have done an MRI and it came back normal,although he only did it for the brain and from what I'm ready some people have it only on the spine. I am now getting ready to have a spinal tap and am pretty fearful. My symptoms started about seven months ago with numbness in the hands and arms, then moved to legs and now has turned into what I would call pins and needles which is everwhere. Even the scalp and face and it just itches. I also get dizzy and have pretty bad headaches. Are these symptoms that any of you have experienced? Does this tingling ever go away or am I going to be living with it for the rest of my life?
